Bannan delighted with maiden strike

12 December 2015

Influential midfield man Barry Bannan bagged his first goal for the Owls at Cardiff on Saturday.

Wednesday were trailing 2-0 before second half strikes from Fernando Forestieri and Bannan stunned the hosts.

For Bannan, the ex-Palace man was delighted to hit his first goal for the club to help Wednesday post a big point in the Welsh capital.

He said: “Ross played it right into my path and lucky enough I’ve hit the target this time and scored.

“I was due a goal and it’s a good time because we got a point from a big game for us.

“I’ve always said we have a great squad here, with a lot of talented players and we want to aim high.

“We came here to win today and if we would have, we would be top six. We want to be right up there at the end of the season.”

Bannan also stressed his desire to extend his stay with Wednesday, where he says he is thoroughly enjoying his football.

He continued: “First and foremost I’ve enjoyed it here and the fans have taken to me.

“I enjoy the way we play football, this way suits my game perfectly and I’m thriving on it on because the gaffer has given me great confidence, so why would you want to leave?”
